How to View a LinkedIn Profile in Private Mode

Linkedin is the ideal social network to make your work profile public, get in touch with former colleagues, colleagues, or possible job opportunities, and receive recommendations from people who work or have worked with you.

If you are on Linkedin, your profile will always be open, and anyone can look at it, the same you can do with others. However, this social network has functionality that no other has: it informs us who looks at our profile. Do you know that you can do this anonymously? In this article, we explain, how to view a Linkedin profile in private mode.

Follow These Steps.

Step One

Unlike other popular social networks, Linkedin has the option of knowing who has visited your profile in recent days from day one. This allows greater interaction between users, especially between those organizations or people looking for new staff to train part of their companies.

However, it is precisely this functionality that often makes us feel self-conscious about exploring the profile of other users to find out their current position or professional experience. That person will end up knowing that we have been there. Is there an option to avoid it? Well yes! It is possible to do it completely anonymously.

Indeed you have seen that unidentified users visit your profile, this possibility is available to all accounts, and you do not have to be a premium user to enjoy this option.

Step Two

To change your privacy settings on LinkedIn, the first thing you should do is access the social network with your email and password. Once inside, go to the upper right corner where your miniature profile photo appears and click on it to display the options menu. You must choose the option Settings and Privacy.

Step Three

When you enter your account settings, you will have four alternatives: account, privacy, advertisements, and communications. You must review each of the system options to confirm if your account is configured as you wish. If anyone can contact you, the number of notifications you want to receive, among other aspects.

To be able to view a Linkedin profile in private mode, you must press the Privacy option.

Step Four

Then the system will give you several alternatives. As we recommended in the previous step, you must look at them in detail to ensure that your account has the level of privacy you want. To become an anonymous user and navigate Linkedin more comfortably, then select Profile view options.

By default, you will have the first alternative marked that includes your name, position, and photo. But if your goal is anonymity, then you must choose one of the two options below: that your profession and the area in which you appear, or leave us an anonymous Linkedin User, the alternative that, in this case, I have chosen.
